In the news

A state agency in Oregon has denied Ambre Energy a key permit it needs to build a Pacific Coast coal dock to ship Powder River Basin coal to Asia. As I've written before, folks in the Pacific Northwest view coal in an entirely different light than people in the Ohio Valley do.


Here's a lawsuit against the EPA that I assume affects power plants along the Ohio River. In this case, environmental groups say a proposed new rule is worthless.


And about 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled into the river at the Beckjord power plant above Cincinnati on Monday.
